How To Gilmour-ize Your Strat, equipment technical info & images

Signal Flow
The Guitars Gilmour's main stage guitar is a USA 57 Vintage Reissue Strat fitted with EMG-SA pickups. He has also installed the EMG-EXG expander & SPC midrange presence controls. Apart from the electrics, the only other custom feature is a shortened tremolo arm so that he can keep it in his picking hand more comfortably while playing. Other guitars used live are an Esquire Telecaster in dropped D tuning for Run Like Hell, two Jensen lap steel guitars one tuned to E B E G B E for One Of These Days & the other tuned to D G D G B E for The Great Gig In The Sky. He also uses two Gibson J-200 Celebrity acoustics one tuned in standard & the other in D A D G A D for Poles Apart & a Gibson Chet Atkins Electro Classical. Both the Jensen Lap Steels & the acoustic guitars are fitted with EMG-H pickups. (These are basically a single coil pickup in a humbucker cap). Strings On the Strats Gilmour uses GHS Boomers with a customized gauge of (.010 .012 .016 .028 .038 .048) On the acoustics he uses Ernie Ball Earthwound Light's. How To Gilmour-ize Your Strat To go along with David Gilmour's taste for pristine Strat tone is his use of EMG active electronic (i.e. battery powered) pickups. Each of his Stratocasters is loaded with low impedance EMG-SA single coils, which he beefs up with two more tone modules: the EXG mid-cut/expander & SPC mid booster. As far as the SA pickups go, they have Alnico magnets which have a little more mid range than the ceramic S magnets. He also has the SPC midrange boost control on there which produces more of a singing humbucker tone. Finally, theres the EXG which David uses alot for rhythm, since it really helps define the notes, especially when there's a little distortion on and he's moving chord voicings around. The EXG works like a V configuration on a graphic EQ when you turn it up, the midrange gets cut, while the bass & treble get boosted. The SPC is where you really here the Gilmour sound emerge. Turn the SPC all the way up & you get that thick bluesy sound used in Shine On. The Analogue Footpedals
Footpedals

(A) Boss CS-2 Compression/Sustainer.

These are no longer available new from Roland. You can only purchase the CS-3 which (to my ear) does not sound as smooth as the CS-2.

(B) Pro Co. Rat II Distortion.

The first generation Rat's distortion, filter & volume knobs yield various Marshally distortion tones.

(C) Cornish Big Muff.

Pete Cornish custom Big Muff. (looks like Pete has taken an original Big Muff and housed it in a custom box). I don't know if this has been modified in any other way.

(D) Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer.

This GE-7 has been set to be used in conjunction with the Rat distortion pedal.

(E) Cornish Soft Sustain.

This is obviously a Pete Cornish custom effect. Notice the combination of the GE-7 graphic EQ sliders & the knobs for sustain & volume.

(F) Sovtek Big Muff II.

The Big Muff is a very heavy-vibed fuzz with volume, tone & sustain controls. The muff sounds huge & powerful despite it's feeble tone control range & is looser & more gargantuan than say a Pro Co. Rat II.

(G) Chandler Tube Driver #2.

The Tube Driver offers lots of tight girthy gain and has an openness that sets it apart from other distortion boxes. Features high/low EQ, tube drive & output controls. These later became known as Tube Works Tube Driver.

(H) MXR Dynacomp Compressor.

The Dynacomp has a natural sounding expansion & a nice bright tone to it.

(I) Ibanez CP-9 Compressor.

(J) Boss Metalizer.

No longer available new from Roland.

(K) Chandler Tube Driver #1.

The Tube Driver offers lots of tight girthy gain and has an openness that sets it apart from other distortion boxes. Features high/low EQ, tube drive & output controls. This later became known as Tube Works Tube Driver.

(L) Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer.

This GE-7 has been set to boost the top & bottom ranges. Labelled T&B

(M) Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer.

This GE-7 has been set to boost the bass ranges. Labelled BASS

(N) Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer.

This GE-7 has been set to boost the mid ranges. Labelled MID The Rack
With Dave Gilmour's rack system we meet a marriage of technologies, old & new. He has always exhibited a preference for older, analogue effects but has had Pete Cornish create a switching system which guarantees ease of use with optimum, low noise performance. The Rack

(A) Furman PL-8 Power Conditioner And Light Controller.

I can only guess that this controls the lights on top of the rack so Dave can see the pedals.

(B) TC. Electronics TC-2290 Dynamic Digital Delay + Effects Control Processor.

This is Dave's primary delay unit. He uses this on most songs.

(C) Uni-Vibe.

The Uni-Vibe unit featues volume & intensity controls, a chorus/vibrato switch & sepearate speed controls for the slow or fast speed options. It also requires a seperate foot switch pedal for fast or slow. Gilmour does not use the chorus option! This effect was originally a footpedal, however Gilmour had his longtime technician Phil Taylor make a rack system out of it. He even had the old logo embossed on the face plate of the new rack.

(D) Digitech IPS-33B Super Harmony Machine.

Diatonic pitch shifter.

(E) Lexicon PCM-70 Digital Effects Processor.

Dave uses the PCM-70 to store the circular delay sounds you hear in Shine On & Time. Because it has a multi tap function it can pretty accurately duplicate the kind of echo Dave used to get from his old Binson echo unit.

(F) MXR Delay System II.

This is another rack system that began life as a footpedal. Phil also added a digital readout that he says is really nowhere close to being an accurate indication of delay time.

(G) Phil Taylor Custom Rack.

This is yet another custom made rack from footpedals. It contains the following effects.

Boss CE-2 Chorus

The original chorus from Boss has rate & depth knobs & sounds sweet, rich & dynamic. There are two CE-2's loaded into this rack one is marked Mono Chorus & the other Left Chorus. (The left chorus is inserted in the signal path for the left channel of Dave's amp setup).

Electric Mistress

The Electric Mistress has rate, range & colour controls, plus a filter matrix switch. This is sort of a bizzarre sounding flanger that gets extremely detuned & twisted.

Tremulator

The Tremulator has speed and depth controls.

(H) Dynachord CL5222 Leslie Simulator.

(I) Samson UHF Dual Receiver.

(J) Peterson Strobe Tuner.

Other Effects & Equipment
There are a few footpedals & other items which are not pictured or part of Dave's current live rig but have been and still are used by him in the studio.

MXR Phase 90

This was MXR's first effect and only has a speed knob that yields complex, swirly phase textures with silky highs & lots of vocal inflection. Also does decent rotating speaker imitations at higher speeds.

Arbiter Fuzz Face

The classic of classic fuzzes sounds big, deep & bad. The Fuzz Face takes you from clean to insanity with a mere twiddle of your guitars volume knob.

Boss HM-2 Heavy Metal Distortion

An 80's classic Gilmour used on About Face (notably at the end of Murder). It delivers incredibly gutsy grind & tons of deep bass boost. Features low/high and colour mix controls.

Maestro Rover

The Maestro Rover looks like a late 1950's NASA satellite (I will try and get a scan of this thing) but it's a rotating speaker designed to go between your guitar and your amp. This sure fire attention getter has amp & instrument inputs & features volume, speed, slow & fast controls. A crossover routes the upper frequencies through the Rover's amplifier to the rotating speaker, while the lower frequencies are sent to your stage amp.

Orange Treble/Bass Boost.

Heil Voice Box

The Midi Foot Controller
This Bob Bradshaw designed pedalboard is used to select individual or different preset combinations of effects. This doesn't do the actual switching though. The left side of Dave's rack unit contains his Pete Cornish custom built switcher, which has 24 sends & returns & uses gold plated relays to turn individual effects on and off. In addition to this, it also sends standard MIDI program numbers to the various MIDI processors that are contained in his rack (such as the Lexicon). It can also send almost anything he wants to the rack, such as a delay time or whatever. I'm not sure if he uses any of these features, but it's there.

FX Facts
Despite the apparent complexity of Dave Gilmour's set up, the actual contents of each track may come as something of a surprise. Essentially his sound is fairly clean, choosing different distortion units to add their characteristic sound to his signal. As an example, to reproduce the track Money from Dark Side Of The Moon live in concert, Gilmour uses this effects combination.

Main Riff: Pete Cornish Soft Sustain with Chandler Tube Driver #2.

Solo: Boss CS-2 Compressor with Chandler Tube Driver #1, Sovtek Big Muff & TC Electronics digital delay.

Solo (Dry Sound): Chandler Tube Driver #1 with Pro Co. Rat II Distortion. The Amplification

Preamp

After journeying through the rack system the signal meets an alembic F2-B bass guitar preamp. This has been modified with an extra tube, lowered output impedance & a different capacitor to help cut the low end.

Amps

Gilmour has always been a fan of Hi-Watt amps, tending to use AP-100 watt heads on stage and combo's in the studio. Live three of the heads are used as power amps & another three are used as slaves. All use Mullard E-34 valves which are desperately difficult to get a hold of these days, but Floyd head of backline Phil Taylor still has a cupboard full!

(A) Right channel output to 4x12's 1+10 8 ohm.

I am guessing that (1+10) refers to channel inputs on a mixer i.e. channel 1 left, channel 10 right.

(B) Left channel output to 4x12's 2+9 8 ohm.

Again (2+9) could be channel 2 right, channel 9 left. If this is the case then Dave could have, for instance, channels 1+2 as a stereo pair for the Marshalls & channels 9+10 as a stereo pair for the WEM's.

(C) Spare AP-100.

(D) Output to Heil Voice Box via Pete Cornish Dummy Load Box 8 ohm.

(E) Output to Doppola's 87, 88 8 ohm.

(F) Output to Doppola 89 8 ohm.

Speaker Cabinets & Doppola's

Speaker Cabinets

The right channel Hi-Watt powers a WEM 4x12 which is loaded with Fane Cresendo speakers and a Marshall loaded with Celestion speakers. A second Hi-Watt does the same thing for the left channel which also carries a chorused signal from a Boss CE-2 Chorus. (See Footpedals Incorporated Into A Rack Space). In the second rack, one AP-100 feeds the Jim Dunlop Heil Voice Box, another feeds Doppola's 87 & 88 (8 ohm) & a third feeds Doppola 89 (16 ohm).

Doppola's

These rotating speaker units were designed by Phil Taylor & Paul Leader to provide Gilmour with that 'Leslie' effect on his guitar. Leslie cabinets themselves might have seemed the obvious choice, but Gilmour was after a slightly different sound. In the studio he had been using Maestro Rover units which are revolving full range speakers but they are too low powered for live use and so the Doppola's were born. Three units are used on stage each loaded with two six inch 100 watt drivers.

(A) Marshall 4x12 cabinet with Celestion speakers.

(B) WEM 4x12 cabinet with Fane Cresendo speakers.

(C) Custom Doppola rotating speakers.

Re: tube driver

No problem Karl,
A Boss Blues Driver would work just fine for a dirty sound. The 70's and early 80's Gilmour has 3 basic setups:
1. Clean - Straight signal to the Amp.
2. Slightly dirty overdrive for some rhythms and some solos.
3. Super dirty which is basically fuzz for full blown solos.

Then he would of course add effects on top of it for different sounds and feels but in general he's using one of those. So all you need is a clean signal on your amp. If you want a little dirty sound or just a little boost for a fairly clean solo...like the first solo in Comfortably Numb...just stomp on an overdrive and like I said, The Boss is a good place to start. Then for a really cranking solo. Switch to the fuzz.

: many thanks brian i cant believe i was going mad for the chandler tube driver as im only into early 70s to early 80s.
: so the boss bd2 is definelty the one? with a little compression maybe depending on which solo

Gilmour's Use of Dimarzio FS-1 on Pompei or Dark side of the moon

Well on my quest to nailing the famed DSOTM sound I've noticed Gilmour gets alot done with the Bridge pickup.

now does he use the FS 1 on the whole Pompei - Dark Side of the moon on the Bridge ?

Anyone have any info on this ? I have the pickup so might as well put it to good use.

Re: Gilmour's Use of Dimarzio FS-1 on Pompei or Dark side of the moon

In every article I've ever read with Dave the pick-ups on all those early albums in that era were Fender Stock. He didn't start using the FS-1 until "Animals". As far as using the Bridge pick-up he usually used it for solos and then usually the neck or middle pick-up for rhythms. Hope that helps...

Gilmour's sound on Pigs (Three Different Ones)

I can't find this question anywhere on the forums so far, so mainly I was wondering if anyone knows what amps,effects or guitars he uses to get the strange "clean" sound in Pigs(Three different Ones)? Does anyone know how to emulate it without going overboard and buying the exact gear? He repeats the chords in a strange way, almost like it's an echo but I'm almost positive it isn't. The sound I'm talking about mainly is the main rythem guitar at the beginning all througout the main verses. Can anyone help me at all? The sound itself to me is most perplexing.

Re: Gilmour's sound on Pigs (Three Different Ones)

In the middle of the song there are chords (a bit like Dogs chords) played with his Strat, sound like the neck pickup. It's played through Dave's Yamaha rotating speaker (sounds like a phaser or Univibe). Like it's documented everywhere, it seems that Roger played the chords with a Strat and Dave the bass and lead guitar for Pigs and Sheep. While Roger played the clean chords on Pigs, Dave did a "screaming pig" with his Talkbox.

Re: Gilmour's sound on Pigs (Three Different Ones)

Gilmour used smaller amps in the studio. He never used his 100watt heads. He has many amplifiers. He used a Fender Twin Reverb in the studio. The Guitar is a Fender Deluxe Telecaster with a Humbucker in the neck. Light overdrive is used to get to get "Dirty Clean". I don't know what he used to get the overdrive on the song. He plays that guitar on most of Animals.

Re: Gilmour's sound on Pigs (Three Different Ones)

Gilmour's tone on that song is extremely extravagant. I love the rich soft sustain and the lush overtones that his guitar makes. He uses a Fender Les Paul with a Vox British Bloke Amp with Roger Water's ego-maniac distortion and Symphonic pedal. A really popular effect is when he sticks a tube up his butt and he farts into his Fender single coil pickups. The sound is super fabulous. I also like it when Nick and Rick play patty cake and drink LSD tea with each other. It's fun to watch them finger paint psychedelic renditions of Rembrandt paintings and learn how to master the hungarian minor scale on a kazoo. I also like it when Roger sticks his fat chin in cheddar cheese and dances around in womens' clothes on Saturday morning at the Macy's parking lot while wearing leather go-go boots. Overall I like it when Syd rubs his palms on Nick's cymbals and gives all of his drum pieces names and calls them his "pet children." The movie version of the wall is about his arranged meeting with a cross-dressing Australian named Gina. It's not about his deteriorating mental health or anything like that, it was his adventures with "her" one night after drinking Abstence and a little Jagermeister.

Re: Gilmour's sound on Pigs (Three Different Ones)

He used a lot things throughout that song. He was using a Strat or course and usually either a Hiwatt amp or Fender Twin Reverb. I'm not sure exactly which part you're talking about, but:
The main riff over the verses is just a fuzz face with mild fuzz using the bridge pickup on the stratocaster.

The little fills are a clean signal with delay in which he uses the volume knob to swell into them.

Later on he uses a clean signal with a leslie speaker.

Solo's he uses a talkbox a fuzz and delay depending on the part.

But that's the basic run down of Pigs...

Well first of do some strong clean acid ;)
Second, tho to be honest, I don't have a clue what he was doing as far as guitar sound, I believe it to sound like he's wearing fingerpicks (Jorma Kaukonen style..) and plucking the chords, which might give way to the 'echoing' sound you're referring to, which I'd never thought of.. nice..
Wish I knew more about it.. or he's playing with his fingers without fingerpicks, with some serious limiting and maybe gating going on

I'd like to hear what you think

Dave

Re: Gilmour's sound on Pigs (Three Different Ones)

I think he is just hitting the chord each time and using a volume pedal to fade those repeats out. It is a cool pseudo-delay effect.

A Suggestion for Good Gilmour Distortion

Hey guys, I just wanted to add the suggestion of using a Tech 21 'Comptortion' pedal to get a good distortion when playing Pink Floyd tunes. I bought one when they first came out a few years ago, while I had a band going with some friends. We weren't a cover band, but thanks to alcohol and pot, we did spend the majority of our rehearsal time playing early Floyd songs (BBC version of Embryo, Breathe, Echoes, A Saucerful of Secrets, etc...)...I always thought the Comptortion sounded great, and then one day it died. Probably my fault - I had recorded a bass solo through it the night before. Long story short, now being drug free for about four years, and having replaced my Comptortion earlier this year, I can honestly say that with a decent amp and a nice short delay, the Comptortion really does the job. I sold the Strat that I had installed the DG-20 EMG set in after I bought my Parker Fly, so having played a number of guitars through it, I can honestly say that the Comptortion is one of the most versatile distortion/sustainers out there. I gave away my Big Muff, and now I'm selling the rest on Ebay to buy a Line 6 Podxt Live.

ok what do i need to have this pedal work for my guitar amp, all i have is one slot to put the power cord in and another for headphones on my amp and im just wonderi how the cry baby will work.

Re: cry baby pedal

1st of all you need a Vox wah wah not a crybaby, and how to hook it up is, from guitar take cord and plug it to input on pedal, and from output take that cord and plug it to your amp. If your going for the gilmour sound you need alot more pedals than a Vox
